DofE Award

The DofE (Duke of Edinburgh) Award, is a well established scheme  started in 1956 to encourage young people to get involved with their communities, take full advantage of the outdoors and work as a team, it's open to everyone who likes a challenge. Their mission is simple - 'to inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development, and recognise their achievements'.

The DofE awards are supported by 100 (Nantwich) Squadron and all cadets over the age of 14 are encourages to take part in the exciting activity. There are three levels which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold DofE Award. And it's never too late to get in on the action - depending on your age you may be able to jump straight in at Silver or Gold level!

It's not a walk in the park. You'll get your DofE Award through persistence and commitment - but as an Air Cadet you'll already know all about that. Over time you'll develop personally and welcome each new challenge. At the end of it all you'll have the world’s leading achievement award for young people under your belt, recognised by employers and universities alike.
